I had posted about the GDM Boycott Petition I came across, agreeing with its philosophy and principle, and urging others to sign as well. I had suggested similar action in an earlier post, but someone else took it a step further.

For some reason, my post was deleted with no explanation, leaving no trace of its ever being posted.

aikox2 -- my post seems to have been removed too, or at least is not found in chronological order. I responded to your comments about real estate "easements" I always thought an archive was a place where things were put and stayed there for ever. Maybe they should call this site something besides an "archive" anyway, here is my previous post again.

Aikox you and your survayor friend are absolutely 100% righ that when someone allows access to their land for a number of years, they grant an easement that can become permenant. I think this is the best argument yet for keeping the Dead up here. However, this legal concept is entrenched in real estate law (that is Real property) and is not usually found running rampant in the area of Intellectual property. Which is what this is.

The lord giveth and the lord taketh away. That is, the music is probably theirs to do with what they want. One poster made the point what about the guy who Healey or which ever Dead representative, allowed a patch to the SBD at the time of the show. What about that tape? Well, I think that the answer is he has his legal copy (and his back ups) for "private personal use" I believe is the way the law pertaining to this states it. Means its not to be sold or really even mass distributed. I think the law is on the bands side. Still, your argument is an excellent one and should be included in any defense.

Hey, I'm as sorry as anyone, I just bought a huge hard drive to fill up. And in fact, my planned activity for TG was to spend the day downloading some stuff I had been streaming previously (like all summer). After having been dragging my feet for about 9 months, I went out and bought this 300gig drive and made it a goal to fill it up with music. Luckily I was able to download gd77-05-13 before the end, God! what a finely executed show. But hey, I want the Dead to continue making a living.

If I have to pay 99 cents a song for a SBD of the gd71-12-10 at the Fox Theater, St. Louis, I would gladly do it. That show was broadcast via local FM station, however the phone companie's lines from the theater to the station were funky and there was a whistle on the dang thing. Guess I'll have to now. Now, I'm making alot of assumptions. Who know's if the music will be available that way. If there is a 'comercialization' of the music/scene, then more people will hear the music and maybe they'll be more Dead Heads, isn't that what we want ??

If anyone really thinks all the music should be provided free to them forever, then i would invite them to call me, as I would like for them to come to St. Louis (at their expense) and work for me for a few weeks-- for free.

Forum: etree Subject: Re: My post is gone- please use existing recent GD threads

Sorry, in the interest of forum usability and moving forward, we really have to start cutting down on adding truly redundant GD thread topics at this point, so that was in my crosshairs as a new thread starter. There have already been *multiple* sufficient refs to the petition links, just see ones in previous threads, viola. Please do add productive thoughts to the *existing* discussion on any of the threads you find off that link. It's all quite fresh, just a few days old.

Deadheads, I recommend using the forum search or browse to find existing, relevant threads to contribute to, rather than creating fresh threads that are just redundant. Thanks!

(BTW More new "let's trade"-type thread starters here may be moderated too in coming days, as I posted about previously. Just go to true trading places like, where it's a great idea to post those.)

(BTW I was going to post some advice in this vein using our post as an example, but you beat me to it while I was writing other replies, heh. :) )

EDIT for others: Threads discussing offers to sell tradable shows for money, even at no profit, are definitely not appropriate here, so don't start any more of them.

Yes. I had a post removed too. I am gone, and nothing gonna bring me back. This lady who moderates this site is a bully and another example of a liberal hypocrite.
